The purpose of muting a testtest - A test is a flow combined with a set of assertions that define the criteria for acceptance. is to prevent it from being replayed in your runs either temporarily or permanently. This feature is useful when the flowflow - A flow is a sequence of interactions (tap, swipe, etc.) that defines a user journey in an application. A flow can start either at application launch from a pristine state (fresh install) or from the last step of another flow. In the first case, the application is launched in a pristine state from a fresh install. In the second case, the other (preceding) flow is called a dependent flow. is no longer relevant or when you are making big changes to your application and you would like to finalize them before updating the test.
A muted test will no longer appear in the list of possible dependencies for a new test and won't be selectable when manually launching a run.
However, keep in mind that if the muted test is a dependency of another active test, it will still be replayed and will appear in the results.
By default, muted tests are hidden. You can show/hide them by clicking on Filter > Status and checking or unchecking the Muted item as desired.
Muting a test is very simple:
You can either:
- Go to the Tests page, select the
Sorted Listview mode, select your test(s) and click
Mutein the action bar on top.
- Go to your test detail page and click the
⋮button at the top right of your test to display the menu. A mute button is available there.
Your test should now be muted and should appear only if the muted filter is disabled.
Muted tests will not be replayed.
The same guide apply for unmuting test(s). Buttons will be reversed in that case.
